This sit-inside kayak design incorporates several other Jackson fishing features found throughout our sit-on-top kayaks. Features like the Hi/Lo seating in the comfortable Elite Seat 2.0, the fast Cuda 12 hull shape, enormous amounts of protected storage for fishing and hunting gear, protected rod storage in tubes along the sidewalls, interchangeable hard deck and optional soft deck options, and strategically located accessory mounting locations. It is also one of our most stable kayaks since the standing area is below the waterline, thus creating a very stable platform. The Kilroy is built with YakAttack tracks and comes standard with various RAM accessories. The Kilroy is tailored for the outdoorsman, offering features for the kayak angler, hunter, wildlife photographer, bird watcher, and anyone hoping to enjoy being on the water all while staying high and dry!

Lower center of gravity than sit on tops. All gear contained inside the kayak. Better protection from weather for colder climates. The open cockpit allows for easy entry and exit, keeps you drier than SOT's, are easy to shoulder, and minimizes weight.
The open front open cockpit design was specifically intended to accept a series of 'Tech Deck' accessory options, from a fabric mesh sunscreen or fly line skirt, to a rigid platform offering fishing features. The cockpit is symmetrical, so each deck can fit in front of or behind the seat.
The Kilroy utilizes a molded deck system at the hull level of the kayak, so all the best features of our SOT designs are still there. Rod stagers along the wall, tubular rod tip protectors, sidewall tackle storage, Hi-Lo seating, and a wide standing platform are also industry firsts for sit-in designs. Open storage in front of and behind seat, with secure rigging at the hull and deck levels.
Designed with stand-ability in mind, you'll find a wide standing platform as roomy as the Coosa and Cuda, with the added benefit of being closer to the water line for even more stability.
